Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS COLD PRESSED JUICE?

Cold Pressed Juice first crushes then gently presses the produce to extract the most nutrients from the plants. Cold pressing juicing protects and preserves these nutrients. There is no heat involved like with other forms of juicing that have fast spinning blades, this causes oxidisation and harms the nutrients. With cold pressed vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytonutrients and the natural properties become available in the juice and are readily absorbed by our bodies. The result is incredibly nutritious, rich in colour, delicious fresh juice.

Juice Institute juice is proudly pressed and poured by hand in Belair, South Australia. We select fresh produce supporting local farmers, thoroughly wash it, then press and pour to get the freshest, flavourful and nutritious juice possible.

HOW DOES THE CLEANSES WORK AND WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

First, you need to choose your commitment from the 1, 2 or 3 day cleanse package. We offer 1.7 litres of juice and an evening 500ml nut mylk  or extra juice for each day. If you are new to cleansing, we recommend a 1 day cleanse or the Raw til 4 package and build up to a longer experience. By giving your digestive system a break from the digestion of solid food, whilst flooding your body with an abundance of bio-available nutrients our body is able to detoxify itself, flush out toxins, repair and heal cells from the inside out.

There are many benefits that can be experienced from doing a cleanse. Everyone is different and will feel differently during this time and results will vary. A greater sense of wellness, energy, lightness, glowing complexion, stronger immunity, mental clarity, reduced inflammation, reduced bloating, less aches and pains and a loss of excess weight may all be achieved.

By loading up on plant nutrition and giving our bodies the essential elements it needs, we are able to take charge of health, stay in balance and be our best, brightest self. As busy people, cleansing is a simple way to re-charge and renew ourselves.

If you wish to cleanse longer than 3 days, we can absolutely arrange this. Please email us at hello@juiceinstitute.com.au

WHAT ORDER SHOULD I DRINK MY JUICE?

You will receive an information page with your cleanse and your juices will be labeled with which order to drink them. We want  your cleanse to be stress free and relaxed for you. Although we have a suggested order, feel free to go with how you are feeling and mix it up if you wish.

HOW DO I BEST PREPARE FOR A CLEANSE?

Undertaking a cleanse is a commitment to yourself. You need to be mentally and physically ready and serious about your commitment. It is a special experience, which gives back to your body and needs to be prepared for.

At least 3 days before your cleanse, start to prepare your body by eliminating or cutting right down on processed foods, refined sugar, coffee, alcohol and animal products (meat, eggs, dairy). We do this to prepare the body for the influx of nutrients it is about to receive and to ensure our bodies wont be overwhelmed by the waste and toxins that may be released. Hydration is essential before, during and after your cleanse. Try to drink a minimum of 2 litres of water per day, this will assist greatly with the detox process. This is important, we want your hydration needs to be met. Drink Up!

WHAT WILL I FEEL LIKE WHEN CLEANSING?

Our bodies take in many toxins in everyday life, when we undertake a detox it is not always going to be pleasant to start with. You may feel headaches, aches and pains, fatigue or even flu like symptoms. This is all part of the body detoxifying and removing the nasties. By drinking adequate water, undertaking some light exercise like walking and yoga, taking extra rest and getting to bed early,  these symptoms will be flushed out quickly and the healing continues. These symptoms will pass and the many benefits of cleansing our bodies will be plentiful.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE CLEANSE AND HOW OFTEN CAN I DO THEM?

After your cleanse, we advise following the similar recommendations of pre-cleanse. We do recommend your first meal back to be beautiful fresh fruit, to gently wakes the digestive system and metabolism. Do your best to keep eating lightly, raw fruits and vegetables, soups, salads, vegetable stir frys to continue the detoxification as long as possible. Whole food plant based is always recommended as it is loaded with fibre, easily digested and full of essential nutrients. Slowly introduce heavier meals back into your diet, keep your water intake up and be proud of your achievement and enjoy the feeling of accomplishment, nourishment and vitality. You did it!

We are all different when it comes to how often you should cleanse. Listen to your body, if you are feeling tired, sluggish, achy or low energy, it may be time to give your body a spring clean and boost in energy. You may choose a weekly or fortnightly one day cleanse, as you enjoy the feeling of wellness and taking care of your body. A longer cleanse maybe seasonal or bi-monthly as it is a great opportunity to re-boot the system, kick start health habits and re-energise inside and out. 

CAN EVERYONE DO A CLEANSE?

We recommend consulting with a medical professional before undertaking a cleanse. Our cleanses are not recommended for minors under 18 years of age, pregnant or breastfeeding women, the elderly or those with pre-existing health condition for which prescription medication is taken.

DO YOU USE ORGANIC PRODUCE?

We try to use organic produce where possible, whilst also keeping our prices reasonable so everyone can experience the wellness of cold pressed juice. We work with local suppliers and when it is achievable to source organic we absolutely do. 

WHAT ABOUT SUGAR?

Our juices contain only natural sugars found in fruit and vegetables. Processed juices in the supermarkets are full of refined sugars, and little nutritional content. The sweetness in fruit is called fructose, a simple sugar found naturally in plant foods. In a healthy person, our bodies can easily digested fructose and use it as energy, unlike table sugar which is harmful to our bodies.

WHAT DOES ‘UNPASTEURISED” MEAN?

We add absolutely nothing to our juice and nut mylks which means they are raw and unpasteurised. They are 100% natural. There is no heat treatment or added preservatives to increase their shelf life. When a juice or milk is pasteurised it goes through a heat treatment and is then cooled down quickly. This ensures bacteria is destroyed but also kills the valuable micronutrients. Our juices do not go through this process, so the vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and antioxidants are readily available.

GLASS BOTTLE RECYCLE

We package our juice in earth friendly glass bottles. Find a creative way to use your glass bottles after you have enjoyed your juice, they make cute vases, perfect for storing water in the fridge, storing nuts and seeds whatever you like.

We also love to receive our bottles back and do recycle them.
